MDE Standards

The Michigan Department of Education has established standards and benchmarks that all school districts must follow.  School districts are given the flexibility to choose their own textbooks, resources, materials, and methods, but all schools must teach the State Standards. These standards and benchmarks can be found within the Michigan Merit Curriculum and are assessed through the MSTEP and SAT tests.   Caledonia Community Schools meets these State Standard requirements by following our district curriculum which is correlated with the Michigan Merit Curriculum.
